Available tomorrow through July 15th, Defense Grid: The Awakening is the first game available as part of the new “Games with Gold” promotion. This comes as a surprise to fans who were expecting Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2 to be released first.
Major Nelson told fans earlier he would be looking into what titles would be released and when, and today told us that Defense Grid: The Awakening is the first.
Originally released in July of 2010, the three year old Defense Grid game currently lists for 800 Microsoft Points. That’s $10 in normal currency. While not exactly the best game for the time, we welcome it with open arms. Hopefully Microsoft is just scraping the bottom of the barrel before they start getting into the bigger and better games.
